Based on Sha Wujing from Journey to the West
> In ancient China, for example, travelling Buddhist monks would often bring along a Moon Tooth Spade: a double-sided weapon with a shovel-like scoop on one end and a crescent-shaped blade on the other. The tool had multiple uses: If the monk happened upon a corpse on the road, he could properly bury it and deliver all the necessary Buddhist rites. And, if he encountered bandits or wild animals, he could bust out the crescent blade to beat the holy hell out of his attackers.
This was said in the Yorick reveal, the Moon Tooth Spade is a weapon that Sha Wujing uses so it would be cool for them to make it happen.
Also before Sha Wujing became a monk he wore a skull necklace which could be a cool correlation to why he can summon mistwalkers. Although in game it would probably better to go with the beads because it might be censored in other countries.
